Having a new-born oftentimes comes with the responsibility of providing a quality environment for that child, but the most expensive baby items in the world go well beyond the budget of a middleclass family. We won’t address whether or not these items are necessary for raising a baby, but we will let you in on the perks that only the wealthiest children can enjoy and how much their parents are willing to spend for these luxury items.
In one of our previous articles about the 10 most expensive items on Amazon, we proved that even the quirkiest articles can find an owner. In this case, with couples procreating at a later stage in their life – allowing them to uphold better salaries and, therefore, indulge more – we’ll see which products provide a superior level of comfort for new-borns, leading parents to crack their savings account. So, if you’re curious to see what the market has to offer its youngest customers, take a look at our list of the most expensive baby items in the world.
7. Annabel Karmel Organic Baby Purees
Price: $19 per kilo
While many parents simply puree whatever natural ingredients they find in their fridge, others prefer to delight their child’s palette with organic baby food. This particularly pricey example offers flavours like Moroccan chicken or cottage pie, but can put quiet a dent in your budget over the months.
6. Magic Bath Baby Hot Tub
This meticulously designed baby hot tub truly lives up to its name: ten air jets make sure the water is nice and bubbly for a fun bathing time and underwater LED lights guarantee a strict oversight of your child when immersed underwater. Furthermore, the curved legs help prevent any topping over if you have an active baby and you can choose whether to bath your new-born in a sitting position, or shower him in a reclined state.
5. DoDo Egg Baby Basket
The most expensive baby basket on the market, and number six on our list of most expensive baby items is the DoDo Egg Baby Basket. As the name implies, this item is meant to resemble the sensation of a nest and achieves this goal by harbouring an egg-shaped design with an interior of natural silk. The shell is carved from a single piece of wood and the price includes a mattress cover, a pillow, and a comforter.
4. Hooded Terry Towel and Washcloth Set
For the extravagant parents that put their child’s skin care first, the luxury baby product firm Aden and Anais created this baby towel set. Made out of 100 percent muslin cotton, the double layer hooded towel and four-layer washcloth are super absorbent and contrary to other towels, which get rougher as time passes, this fabric actually gets softer with every wash. Definitely a good investment if you wish to protect your baby’s sensitive skin.
3. The Roddler
This aerodynamic baby stroller is highly sought-after amongst wealthy young mothers and its price tag, while hefty, should come as no surprise. Modelled after a mini car, this stroller’s wheels are protected by a chassis and its seat is crafted out of cowhide, stingray, or alligator skin, according to the model. You can also customize the Roddler by engraving your name or any other design on it, free of additional costs.
2. Bespoke Handcrafted Mattress
Price: $10,000 to $50,000
When you order a mattress handcrafted by the great Hypnos, you know you’re getting the real deal. The mattress manufacturer became famous for tending to the British royal family with his custom designs – picture the man who made the Queen’s actual bed – and he’s extremely meticulous. These custom-made sleeping surfaces follow the exact specifications of the parents, and they can dictate the shape and size they want for their baby. If necessary, they can be made to fit king and queen size beds.
1. Fantasy Coach
The most expensive baby item in the world is without a doubt the Fantasy Coach, a baby crib created by the luxury child merchandise brand Posh Tots. Handcrafted out of fiberglass and wood, this extravagant crib is modelled after Cinderella’s pumpkin-turned-carriage and the manufacturing process takes an estimated six months after ordering it. Unfortunately, the price doesn’t include the interior decorations and linens, so parents wanting to give their child a dream crib will have to drop even more cash.
